Alcott’s Science Fair is an opportunity for our young scientists to demonstrate their interest and skills in scientific investigation through preparation of science models or presentations. Students get a chance to learn and apply the formal scientific method, document a report and present it independently.




General InformatioN


    • Register to participate. All Student scientists wishing to display a project at the fair are required to register with their idea (Video/Audio) and submit reports (Tri-fold boards) in advance. We strongly encourage early registration in order to reserve your space!

    • Projects should be student driven. Project ideas should come from the students themselves and the project should be driven by them. Parents should use their best judgement in deciding when to get involved, such as when there is a potential safety issue, or correction of method is necessary. Students should learn how to improve their own skills and the quality of their work. Parents may provide guidance and help, but it is important that kids can call the project their own and are independently able to handle questions and explanations during the event. 

    • Independent presentation. Students should present their projects independently. Judges will assess quality of research and understanding with questions when they present at the science fair.

    • Day of Science Fair. Student scientists participating in the fair will need to bring their displays on Wednesday, May 8th, 2024 at 3:30pm to the Alcott gym. Displays may not be dropped off at school prior to the event. It is highly recommended that the participants send in a picture of the Model/experiment/presentation in advance!


Make sure to review all Rules and Guidelines here. 
Violation of any of the rules will result in disqualification.

Our science fair is competitive! We want to encourage high quality work and curiosity right from the start.
